French opposition to child adoption by same-sex couples is growing. This is according to a survey published by Catholic daily newspaper La Croix. 56% of French say they are against it (Taubira’s hotly disputed law is about to be debated in the Senate). In 2012, 48% of those interviewed were against same-sex adoption. The percentage of those in favour has dropped by 41%. The online survery was carried out between 2 and 3 April 2013, on a national sample of 993 people aged 18 upwards. The sample number was calculated using the quota method, after applying stratified sampling to each region and according to dimensions of agglomeration. 53% are in favour of same-sex marriage, particularly leftists (70%). 59% of right-wing supporters are against. Men are split down the middle, while 56% of women are in favour. 67% of young people aged between 18 and 24 are in favour but support decreases with age (only 31% of over 65s surveyed were in favour).

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
